Triflare Nomad Sport Bikini Top and Bottoms


$39 each, Swimoutlet.com

The draw: A flattering fit

This bikini got mad compliments at a Masters swim for the fun print and full-coverage cut that’s sure to flatter every body type. The top didn’t take in water, and the thicker-strapped, racer-back design was comfortable while letting shoulders rotate unencumbered. The bottoms have a drawstring to keep them from popping during a flip-turn, and so does the top to keep it from riding up. It’s a nice feature, but once you knot that top string, it’s tough to decide where to tuck it.
